Fusion suppression and sub-barrier breakup of weakly bound nuclei

Dasgupta, Mahananda; Fulton, B R; Morton, Clyde; Wooliscroft, R J; Berriman, Annette; Hagino, Kouichi; Hinde, David


The mechanism for the large suppression of complete fusion in the 9Be+208Pb reaction has been investigated through measurement of sub-barrier breakup of 9Be. Excluding breakup through the 8Be ground state, whose lifetime is too long, a prompt breakup component remains, having sufficient probability to explain the observed suppression of complete fusion. This appears to be associated with interactions at the nuclear surface. The fusion suppression is predicted to be almost proportional to the...[Show more]
